9780199781843: Future Bright: A Transforming Vision of Human Intelligence

Ever since Alfred Binet invented the first IQ test more than a century ago, we have thought of intelligence as fixed from birth and unalterable-as genetically programmed and immutable as eye color. If our IQ was 115 at the age of eighteen, it would be 115 at age thirty-two and at age seventy-two. But as Michael Martinez reveals in Future Bright, human intelligence is not at all a static quality. Drawing on cutting-edge research, Martinez shows that not only can we improve our IQ scores--with the right approach, we can improve intelligence itself.

Future Bright introduces the radical view that intelligence can be learned. Ranging from the search for Einstein's brain to the curious case of a railroad worker whose frontal lobe was pierced by a tamping iron, Martinez looks at some of the most fascinating stories in the history of cognitive science, revealing how researchers have sought insight into intelligence by understanding more about the brain. We see how the physical structures of the brain relate to how we think, discover how memories are made, and examine the several kinds of intelligence. Martinez then explores the astonishing evidence from recent cognitive science that intelligence can be learned. Equally important, he concludes with ten strategies for enhancing our intelligence, beginning with the all-important idea of making improved intelligence a conscious goal, and including such ideas as reading books, learning to be an expert, finding where our talents lie and, not least, eating well and exercising, both of which improve brain function significantly.

Genetics is only one of the factors that shape our intelligence. Future Bright highlights the many ways that the environment and education can increase our brain power, promoting the growth of a more intelligent society--one that will lead us into a brighter future indeed.

Descripción Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2013. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Future Bright introduces a radical idea: Intelligence is learnable. This idea is tremendously important because it means that with the right environment, intelligence levels can be increased intentionally. Intelligence is essential to the survival and prosperity of not only individuals, but also organizations, nations, and the entire planet. Martinez first considers a seemingly simple question. What is intelligence? Examining some of the most fascinating stories in the history of cognitive science reveals the ways our ideas about intelligence have been shaped. Current research asks, Is intelligence just one thing? Or are there many different ways of being intelligent? For answers, we turn to the seat of intelligence, the brain. From the search for Einstein s brain to the curious case of a railroad worker whose frontal lobe was pierced by a tamping iron, researchers have sought to understand more about intelligence by understanding more about this mysterious organ. How do physical structures relate to how we think? How are memories made? How do the brain and the mind relate to one another? Finally, Future Bright explores the provocative finding from recent cognitive science research that intelligence can be learned. Genetics play only one part in an individual s intelligence potential. It is that part that is influenced by the environment that is most interesting, however, because if intelligence can be learned, then it can be taught. Future Bright explores ways that the environment and educational contexts can influence the growth of a more intelligent society - one that will lead us into a brighter future indeed.
